Hardware / Peripherals / Checking whether the PCI-E port is working? (Help)
« on: February 19, 2011, 08:06:17 pm »
As I recalled earlier in a thread, still my VGA aint working and I'm scared of checking the slot with another VGA.

The main problem was this, When the VGA is connected in the mobo, the monitor wont get power through the VGA, or neither through the Onboard VGA. So as I remove the VGA and connect the monitor to the Onboard, It works fine. And now as i figured out, My external VGA aint working. It worked with another PC when this error just came. And so now i'm afraid of connecting another VGA to the mobo cause i'm not sure whether it'd not work either.

Is there a way of checking my mobo PCI-E port? I googled but I didn't find anything useful in this manner. Thanks.

My mobo :- Foxconn G31MX
VGA I had :- Nvidia 8400GS that i'v been using for like an year.

Thu January 27, 2011

Sony at its special event on Thursday lept back into mobile gaming with the Next Generation Portable. The soon-to-come  PSP2 promises a PS3-level experience with a much faster, quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and a multi-core PowerVR SGX543MP4 graphics chip four times faster than seen before. It centers on a massive five-inch, 960x544 OLED screen that promises a much larger experience than on a smartphone.

The handheld is also the first portable console to have a built-in 3G modem and, if players want, gives them an always-on Internet connection for multiplayer or downloading content when not near 802.11n Wi-Fi. GPS is onboard as well. A special app, Near, will let users see what other gamers are currently playing or saying, such as on a train; it should let them join in or download a game they don't yet have. It can even show the most popular game in an area.

LiveArea, the new main interface, completely overhauls the experience and provides both live updates from friends as well as quick access to games, the store, trophies and a web browser.

Control is much broader and brings dual analog sticks with real tilt as well as both a touchscreen and a backside, two-finger multi-touch pad. The touchpad is the same five inches across as the LCD and gives games a one-for-one map of what's happening onscreen. A Sixaxis equivalent with a gyroscope and accelerometer lets players control games by moving and tilting the system itself.

Both front and back cameras are onboard and also raise possibilities of camera-based gaming and video chat. The game system hopes to strike a balance between the original PSP's physical media and the PSP Go's downloads with an option of a new, memory card based format for storage. Games that come on the new card will still have free write space and can save downloadable extras or game saves. Sony noted that the inherently growing capacity of flash memory meant that future games could have more content or more room, something which hadn't been possible with past physical games.

Sony promised a sweeping range of high-profile game series additions from the start, including Hot Shots Golf, Little Big Planet, Resistance, Wipeout and Uncharted. The company also noted that Activision's Call of Duty series would eventually reach the platform, while Konami, Sega and Epic Games showed technology demos of Metal Gear Solid 4, Yakuza 4 and Epic Citadel that proved PS3-quality graphics could work on the NGP, albeit in MGS4's case at a reduced 20FPS in current form.

Downloadable PSP games will still work, as will those from PlayStation Suite, the new cross-platform environment for PS1 games.

The game system is due to ship to at least Japan in time for the holidays and should get many more details, including launch games, at E3 in June. A US date hasn't been given out, but the original PSP reached the US a few months afterwards.

The NGP represents a major leap forward for Sony and a possible recovery of its handheld gaming business, which collapsed rapidly as the iPod touch grew in popularity. SCEI president Kaz Hirai in presenting the NGP acknowledged a "radical change" in the gaming market since 2005 that was triggered largely by the iPhone and iPod; casual gaming was now an option on a smartphone, he said.

In the past year, the company has lost enough share to Apple that it began running anti-iPhone ads to argue that the touch-only platform couldn't provide a deep gaming experience. PSP-level graphics weren't possible on a phone at the time the first PSP arrived, Hirai said on Thursday to justify the lack of development.

Including 3G is a potential major edge for the new console and could eliminate one of the most common gaps in the experience for iPod touch and Nintendo DSi owners, who can't assume they have Internet access and are excluded from many location-based apps. Questions have been raised as to how much 3G will cost as the size of game downloads and the bandwidth needed for multiplayer make it unlikely that service will be given away for free and thus affordable for younger players. Many iPhone owners often use theirs for gaming as it consolidates gaming and cellphone calls into a single device.

Communal Assistance / 10 Most Anticipated Tech Products of 2011
« on: January 17, 2011, 10:06:03 pm »
Anticipated Tech: 2011
The new year is just around the corner, and major tech companies have promised us some innovative new products to arrive in coming months. Of course, we'll see the really new stuff at the Consumer Electronics Show in January (along with a lot of concepts and vaporware), but the 2011-ready products have been in the making for a long time. A Sony PSP phone, a white iPhone, Windows and Android tablets, and a 3D VAIO laptop are just a few of the things we're looking forward to.

So here are some of the most anticipated tech products of 2011--check them out.

PSP Phone
Expected launch: February 2011

Expected pricing: Unknown

Expected specs: Android 3.0, 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, 3.7-inch or 4.1-inch screen, MicroSD slot (rumor)

About: The PSP phone has been a hot rumor for some time, but purportedly leaked photos have improved the rumor's credibility. The images show what appears to be a modified PSP Go device running smartphone software. The PSP is a standout device that offers a fantastic gaming and multimedia experience in a small package. Could Sony finally have realized that it needs to support the PSP just as vigorously as Apple supports the iPhone? Let's hope so.

White iPhone 4
Expected launch: Spring 2011

Expected pricing: $199 (16GB) and $299 (32GB)

Expected specs: 16GB or 32GB storage, A4 processor, 960-by-640-pixel retina display, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, front-facing camera, iOS 4.2

About: The fate of the white iPhone 4 is far from certain as the device's launch date has already been pushed back four times. Some observers speculate that we may not see a white iPhone until the expected launch of iPhone 5.

Sony VAIO 3D laptop  
Expected launch: 2011

Expected pricing: Unknown

Expected specs: 16-inch LCD display, active-shutter glasses required, 1920-by-1080 2D resolution

About: Little is known about Sony's first entrant in the 3D laptop category, but considering the popularity of VAIO devices, a 3D Sony laptop is intriguing. There's no word on whether this device will integrate with other Sony 3D products, what it will cost, how much storage it will have, or even what kind of processor it will carry. Expect to hear more about this device in January during CES.

Sprint 4G Tablet
Expected launch: 2011

Expected pricing: Unknown

Expected specs: Unknown

About: Sprint's president of business markets, Paget Alves, recently told Forbes that the carrier would be bringing a 4G tablet to its network in 2011. The company made similar statements last May. It's unclear who would make the tablet and whether it would be an exclusive deal. Regardless, Sprint is investing heavily in its so-called 4G WiMax network and will likely be the first carrier out of the gate with a 4G tablet. SlashGear speculates that Sprint's 4G tablet will end up being the BlackBerry PlayBook.

Nintendo 3DS
Expected launch: 2011

Expected pricing: Unknown

Expected specs: 3.53-inch widescreen top screen with 800-by-240-pixel resolution, 3.02-inch lower screen with 320-by-240-pixel resolution, glasses-free 3D, two rear-facing cameras (0.3 megapixel) for 3D imaging, one front-facing camera for head tracking, touchscreen, stylus inputs, ad hoc multiple-device Wi-Fi connection, 802.11 Wi-Fi

About: Early impressions of the Nintendo 3DS are that the glasses-free 3D device is a good first effort. The big question about this device involves pricing: The current versions of the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi sell for about $130 to $170. How much more will the 3D version cost, and what would you be willing to pay for it?

Windows 8 Public Beta
Expected launch: Late 2011

Expected pricing: Free until the RTM version launches late 2011 or early 2012

Expected specs: (Rumor) Deeper integration between home, mobile, and work computers, app store, simplified interface compared to Windows 7, expanded digital media support, improved startup time and power management

About: Okay, so this one could be a stretch for 2011. Most people anticipate that Windows 8 will debut in late 2012--if there are no delays. But lately Microsoft has been soliciting early, broad feedback about its new software, so a public beta of the new OS just might become available sometime in 2011, even if Windows 8 experiences situation-normal development.

iPhone 5
Expected launch: Summer 2011 (rumor)

Expected specs: Faster, thinner, lighter, more storage

Expected pricing: Unknown

About: Apple has produced a new version of its smartphone every year since launching the original iPhone in 2007--so it would be a shock if Apple didn't launch a new phone in 2011. There are relatively few rumors about this device right now, but the rumblings are likely to grow louder as Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference approaches in June.

Console and PC Games
Expected launch: Throughout 2011

Game titles: Metal Gear Solid: Rising; Batman: Arkham City; Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One; Crysis 2; Mass Effect 3; Socom 4; Tomb Raider

About: A lot of familiar franchise updates will hit consoles and PCs in 2011, including the long-anticipated Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

iPad 2
Expected launch: Early 2011 (rumor)

Expected specs: Front- and rear-facing cameras, thinner, slimmer, faster, lighter, enhanced display

Expected pricing: Unknown

About: Apple hasn't yet confirmed the second-generation iPad, but the company has a habit of updating its other prominent iOS devices--the iPhone and iPod Touch--every year. There's no reason to expect its handling of the iPad to be any different.

Panasonic Lumix GF2
Expected launch: January 2011

Expected pricing: Unknown

Expected specs: 12-megapixel resolution, 3D still image support, 1080i and 720p video capture, RAW, JPG, mostly touchscreen controls, 3-inch touchscreen LCD

About: It won't do 3D video, but the Panasonic Lumix GF2 will work with the company's new 3D Micro Four-Thirds lens for 3D still image capture. Of course, to view your new 3D images properly you'll need a 3DTV and active-shutter glasses.
